DSC Intertext Symposium 2020

The DSC Intertext Symposium is a unique Higher Degree by Research (HDR) student-led conference for the College of Design and Social Context (DSC) at RMIT University.

The Intertext Symposium aims to showcase postgraduate research across the 8 schools within the DSC, celebrating the significant contributions of postgraduate researchers towards the advancement of knowledge as well as bringing together the HDR community to provide a channel for the exchange of information and transdisciplinary collaboration. 

Candidates who wish to present at the symposium will need to submit an abstract of 200-250 words to the committee by 24 July 2020. The organising committee will assess the abstracts based on quality and will notify the candidates of the outcome by 7 August 2020. Candidates at all stages of candidacy are welcome. Please email abstracts to dsc.intertext@rmit.edu.au

This year the symposium will be held online in the week of the 14-18 September. Presenters will pre-record their presentations and upload them to Canvas where all symposium attendees will be able to view and engage with the presentations. Live sessions will take place daily between 12.30-2pm, where an academic chair and referee will facilitate a Q&A with the presenters and wider audience. Go to the Intertext event page.
